Blog: The Nature of Being Organized
Celebrate Letting Go Of Resistance!

Have you noticed that we can become very attached to our routines, traditions and rituals? Sometimes to the point where we just can't let go of them at all. How do we respond, though, when one day life steps in and everything changes right before our eyes? Our best friend has a wonderful job offer ten hours away and has to move. Our weekly group meeting has to find a new home. Or there is a tragedy that rocks our world. The most natural response is to resist, protest and struggle to find a way to make it go back to the way it used to be. We are true creatures of habit.
This year among the many things I let go in my life I had to let go of the weekly routine of meeting with my friend before our weekly spirituality group. For two years it was just the two of us, but a few months ago it all changed when two new members of our group joined us. I silently protested for awhile then expressed to my friend how I felt knowing I needed to let go. It has never gone back to just the two of us instead it has taken on a new life with wonderful new energy. Something that would not have been my choice initially became a beautiful gift of friendship and connection.
Struggle and resistance blind us to the opportunities hidden in change. Once we let go, however, the blinds are lifted and the gift is revealed. What are you struggling with letting go? Are you ready to let go of resisting and allow the gift that is waiting for you to be revealed?
As we wind down The Year of Letting Go at A New View we're celebrating the shifts and changes that have taken place. Send us your letting go stories we'd love to hear them!
Love To You,
